This week i have been mostly Swan Kulning …

There are a few more posts about folklore sites in the pipeline, but i need to revisit the locations for photos. So in the mean time here is another curious and intriguing piece that caught my eye on youtube.

This kind of vocalising has a very ancient feel to it, and it can also be heard in the songs of  Karoliina Kantelinen (ethno musicologist at Helsinki university) who incorporates these old vocal traditions into her own performance.

This singing tradition survives in the far north of Europe, among the Saami people of northern Finland and the Rune singers of Karelia.

No preview on this video but still plays ok
